saying bin laden is dead and detroit is alive. but the fact is you have had to walk that back because there is a threat. apparently serious enough to close all of these embassies. and more broadly, i think you are seeing the collapse of a lot of the progressive doctrine that has gone into obama's foreign policy this notion that beginning even before obama took office in berlin that you could go and apologize for america. blow kisses at europe, then, you know, outstretch your hand to iran and now you go to cairo, apologize for america. apologize for a cia operation that took place nearly a decade before obama was gone. and end wars. and that that would somehow make these threats go away. it just hadn't happened. obama still can't name the threat we face. saying it's just extremism. i know someone who calls himself extreme yoga instructor. put her in guantanamo and make the enemy safer. the enemy in this regard is islamism. we are doing just about nothing to fight that. >> laura: christian, i will take issue with something you said though because while you are right, i think on the lang

washington, d.c., detroit and chicago. have the highest gun murder rates in the entire country. we also know the converse that in areas of the country where gun control is relatively lax, crime rates go down. an armed society is a safer society. that's a different question than the police in stop and frisk. >> that's not necessarily true. in texas, they have you know, you can carry and it's fairly easy to acquire a gun legally. but houston is -- you know, it's a dangerous place because you have got a lot of that what we were talking about. the neighborhoods that are out-of-control. that's where all the crime begins. do you believe stop and frisk, colmes, is racial profiling? >> the way they do it in new york is i'm not against stop and frisk and neither is the court. the court way it's being implemented in new york in newark where they're every month putting on line who is being stopped. racial -- what race they are and complete transparency that's the way to do it. and civil libertarians. >> bill: have an officer who stops somebody do what? >> write down how are stopping. write down the rac

productivity. >> remember in detroit, we saw the guys drinking and smoking marijuana on their lunch hour? >> yeah. >> the union guys were going back together, put the car together. you can screw up your product if you're a manufacturer or you can screw up your service if you're working in a service industry. >> oh, yeah. that's why so many large employers do drug testing of their employees before they ever even sign them up. >> it's hard to find out if somebody's buzzed if you drug test it's easier. >> yeah. >> this is a huge problem in the united states. the centers for disease control is on it. another problem, this is not a huge problem but it's a growing problem. bear attacks. we'll show you one. roll the tape. >> with all of us here, you can't do much. got to run him off. fortunately we can't cut him off. >> he's coming back. >> hey. hey. get out of here. hey! hey! go, go, go, go. whoa. [ bleep ]. [ bleep ]. >> no. i'm telling you, he ain't [ bleep ] around. >> i was in alaska two weeks ago. >> were you chased by a bear? >> i wasn't chased by a bear, but a bear popped out. i was in

in a radio show in detroit. never knowing it would get national attention and perhaps i should not have repeated what many community residence have said to me. >> bill: now we have common ground, you shouldn't have done it let's advance the. >> okay, bill. >> bill: you shouldn't have done it okay. now, i believe you are a sincere woman. i think you want the best for your constituents and a lot of them are poor and a lot of them live in violent neighborhoods, i believe that what do you think in am i right in saying that this violence is driven by chaos within the community. broken families, unsupervised youth. a coarsening of the whole situation. am i wrong in saying that? >> i think you are terribly wrong. the violence has escalated because of a poor ed education system. because of lack of employment. because of the inability to use a park district free as i did when i was a kid there are no resources to help these kids do anything. >> bill: has nothing to do with the family. it has nothing to do with the collapse of the family. >> i did not say it has nothing to do with it the family.
